Part II further examines the twin pressures of European encroachment and rapid modernization, as well as revealing how contact with the West fueled the flames of nationalism and independence. These volumes trace the many national, religious, and tribal conflicts throughout the region, such as the Druse-Maronite rivalry in Lebanon, the Greco-Turkish confrontation over Cyprus, and the Armenian-Turkish question. Iran's frontier problems with Iraq, Jewish communities in Palestine and the reaction to Zionism, the rise of the Saud dynasty, and the tension between Soviet and Western interests in the region are also found in these volumes.
